"Color space"

Hi to all Nikonians friends around the planet,
Just let me bring to you the sunshine of the tropic. I'm happy to share the same realities as you, though we are separated by thousands of kilometres.

I was going through the D300 manual and came to color space.I read that when Adobe RGB is selected,the colours might not be as vivid if the pic is not extensively processed.

My question is to know how to get brillant colours if Adobe RGB is selected? Does it have the same effect when using colour booster or saturation?

I'll check the Youtube site to know more about Capture soon.

Thanks to all and enjoy life wherever you are.
Ned

Hello everybody,
i'm just adding that i visited youtube,looking for the tutorials related to sharpness.I watched about whitening eyes,retouching,control points,etc.

To my great disappointment,i could not come across any videos regarding colours.

i guess the sharpening tools will help dealwith colours too.

I welcome any comment from you all.

Regards

That is not true. What is true is that if you try to look at the aRGB images in a space that requires sRGB (a much smaller color space) and don't convert the color space in your image to sRGB beforehand then your image will look washed out on your monitor or on the web. It is better to shoot in Adobe RGB and process in Pro Photo Color space and then when you are done convert to 8 bit sRGB for anything you plan to post on the web. To do this you would make your working color space in VNX2, CNX2 or even Adobe products Pro Photo and set your camera to shoot in Adobe RBG. This will assure that you keep your image color details and not throw away data. Sometime in the future, displays may show larger color spaces than sRGB and in fact some high end monitors already cover most of the aRGB space right now. Once your processing is done. Save the file and then make a web version for posting by doing a convert of the assigned color space to sRGB. So there is no EXTENSIVE processing other than doing a single convert command at the end of what ever process you would normally do.

Bob is correct - changing color space is quite easy.

It would be nice if changing color space could be handled with a check box under the Convert command in View NX2. I find that many of my web posts are handled in View so this could be simplified. Capture has so many variations in final output that it probably is not practical to have a check box, but that is an option for the future.
